Money won - mobile scam


Got an sms this morning saying I had won R975 000 in fifa mobile promo Ref: SA/19750 Call 0836837732 (Alex Thomas) for prize. Suggested I pick to receive a cheque, to buy R275 X2 Vodacom airtime and call back with the purchase reference number and my cheque would be delivered via courier. I decided that this is a scam!!  Where do they get your number from?  Even new that I was residing in Northcliff, Johannesburg!  This is scary!!

    I also received an email today.... saying i had won R150 00 and before i could claim my prize i needed to purchase R275 airtime and sms them the voucher number etc. As they claimed to have been from Nokia i asked them where there premises were to be told they were at Shop 106 Canal Walk, Cape Town, I then asked for a landline number and was given 021 823 6535. Well when i called the landline number i asked the guy who answered the phone where the shop was,,,, and guess what.... he told me 105 Long Street Cape Town ..... do these people think we are idiots to fall for their scams.
